An ox-bone soup restaurant located in Jung-gu, Seoul is receiving much attention.  It was revealed that the owner Lee Soon Ja of 'Moon Hwa Ok' restaurant had been serving free lunch meals to the elderly since 1990 inviting approximately 100 guests every day.

It was stated that Lee served a total of 32,000 free servings every year to the elders in the neighborhood, calculating to around $230,000 worth of food.

The reason Lee decided to volunteer with such a kind act was due to her mother-in-law.  She commented, "My mother-in-law took great care of me. Whenever I see elders I always think about my deceased mother-in-law."

After her mother-in-law passed away, Lee volunteered at the Euljiro-dong's Saemaul Woman's Community Center where she visited a senior citizen center and decided to serve free bowls of ox-bone soup after finding out the elders there weren't having lunch on a regular basis.

Lee commented, "Seeing the condition they were in, I wanted to serve them a warm meal."

She added, "I would like to continue serving and would like everyone to be happy after eating food that I have prepared myself."

Koreans are not only pretty, clever, hard working but very charitable. Example of this lady ! It's why I am so proud of being Korean! Manse Korea !

Oh, the irony of you insulting Korean people while commenting on a website dedicated to Korean culture and most likely consuming said culture. It's cultural appropriation at its finest, and you should be ashamed of yourself. You can say this person or that person is ugly all you want, but I think deep down even you can admit that the ugliest thing is the hate and disrespect you spew.

The irony of this is wang_sejungs not korean. You must have not read any of her posts prior to this article or how toxic she is. Why can't I call the average korean ugly? I'm korean, and I think most average koreans are ugly. Does that make me hate them? No it just means physically they are not up to my standards. Before you sound like an idiot, you shouldn't assume anything on the internet without knowing the history and the context of what is said.
